From Rathbone Apartments, it’s an eight-minute walk to the School of Oriental and African Studies, and a 13-minute walk to University College London. Use the bus stop across the road to reach the rest of the city’s campuses, or walk three minutes to Tottenham Court Road tube station. With all your furnishings provided (including cutlery, bed linen and towels), moving in couldn’t be easier whether you choose a private room or one shared with a friend.
Each morning, cook breakfast in your shared kitchen, or stop in at TAP Coffee for espresso and fresh pastries on the way to class. At the end of the day, catch up on your flatmates’ news around the dining room table, before curling up on your bed in front of the TV. Use the Wi-Fi to Skype home, or research a paper at your bedroom desk. When you’re finished, de-stress with a long soak in your bathroom tub – with all utilities included, you won’t have to ration your hot water usage. A weekly linen change and room clean is also provided, so it’ll be easier than ever to kick back and relax.
After your bath, throw your clothes in the washing machine and stroll four minutes up the road to your local supermarket. If you don’t feel like cooking, run the apartment iron over your best outfit and invite your friends out for dinner. Zelman Meats is the ultimate barbecue choice, while Govinda’s is your go-to for Indian-inspired vegan and vegetarian fare. When you get home, get a good night’s sleep knowing that your safety is being taken care of by the 24-hour CCTV.
